This is one of those feel good, love story that will leave feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. This may not be a full length book, but there was so much packed in that you didn't feel like you were missing anything. The story was written very well with characters that you can't help but care and root for.

I love how our main couple, Megan and Nathaniel aka Nate, complimented each other so well because they were a reflection of each other. They each bore scars that have become a burden on themselves. The difference is that Megan's scars are internal due to horrible events that occurred in her past which left her unable to form an emotional and physical connection with a man. On the other hand, Nate's scars are literally physical scars that cover his whole right side from an IED explosion during his tour in Afghanistan. I enjoyed reading how they help each other heal the other's scars and finding a deep connection with each other.

Nate was amazing in this story. He's the epitome of the knight in shining underneath his disfigurement. You can sense his strength and the desire to protect those closest to him. He had a rugged to charm to him that you can't help but be pulled by. But you also see his own inner turmoil regarding his appearance. His belief that no female would ever be with him due to his looks. It was great reading how deeply affected he was by Megan's complete acceptance of himself. As much as he was helping Megan with her situation and her issues, Megan helped him just as much. That moment where it clicked for both of them was very moving and touching.

I also liked the supporting characters, Megan's adorable 4 year old Emily and Nate's no nonsense father Jack. They added that extra punch to the story. They were great in their roles, especially Jack. I really loved his bluntness. It was actually pretty charming and funny.

This edition of the book also came with a short story at the end. It mostly focused on the men, specifically Marc, Megan's brother, and his friend Julian from the main story. It was funny to read the interaction between the men and how a simple beer run turns out not to be so simple. It had humor and action. It was a great treat to have after the main story.

I thoroughly enjoyed this heartwarming love story. I enjoyed reading Megan's journey to discovering her ability to be with a man in spite of all the horrible things she's gone through and Nate realizing that a woman can see him as a man past his physical disfigurement. I was touched and left me feeling good in the end. Plus you can't go wrong with a story that has horses and an adorable toddler.

I have read many Pamela Clare books and have loved them all. Even though this is a novella, it had the depth and emotion of a full length novel. Great story.
